I Am Lake Michigan

By Elana R., Loyola Park After School Program

As my waves crash along your shore
I watch the pretty white birds soar
I know that I should leave you be
But when will you let me free
I never wanted to hurt humans
So I removed sharks that were putrid
And if I had a sweet sweet whale
Nobody would be able to sail
So in the winter I hibernate
To keep every single human very safe
The End.
